Taking the “waste” out of wastewater Read more about sustainable water projects. Black & Veatch integrated a complex new asset into an existing major wastewater treatment plant at Davyhulme to maximize the use of biosolids for agricultural purposes and produce renewable energy. 0 Related Insights Integrating Military Water Supply into Mission-Critical Planning DoD facility managers also are faced with similar challenges to water utilities including limited funding, regulatory pressures and aging infrastructure. Fortunately that means that many bases can take lessons learned from industry leaders and adapt best practices to address budgetary restraints, meet compliance mandates and deliver long-term value. Commercial and Industrial Water: Fit-for-Purpose Gains Traction Heavy water users, from power plants to oil and gas refineries, chemical plants, data centers and more are recognizing that they need to manage water differently. Capital Maintenance Comes to the Forefront in the UK Change is afoot for water utilities in England and Wales. For the past 30 years these private companies have favored capital investment for the creation of new assets as the best way to achieve their service, environmental and quality targets. Looking to the future, however, new assets are likely to be the solution of last, rather than first, resort. Recycled Wastewater Plays Starring Role in Resilience, Reliability Direct potable reuse (DPR) — when wastewater is treated to the extent that it meets drinking water standards and then is added into the drinking water supply — is coming up in the ranks as a subject of research and development. Big Data Bringing Optimization to Life for Water Utilities Big Data and the complicated algorithms that help translate that data into intelligence can be difficult concepts for any organization, regardless of industry, to swallow.
